Was speaking to a Perry player, he asked me why does everybody hate Massillon so much. He said his girlfriend, team mates and everyone he talks to in his age group despise Massillon. So this goes beyond a few posters on Yappi. I personally think it's ( and nobody ever admits to this) a jealously thing. Let's face it, we're football crazy over here and very few communities rival our fervor for the game. But I've noticed over the years that the young kids get this attitude from hating parents and grandparents. This must then be a generational thing. I mean, the young kid asked my why this is.
So yea, as Paul Brown said " if your from Massillon, then your special "
Another thing I wanted to touch on after scrolling through comments.
Open enrollment was supposed to even the playing field with private schools. This was their last effort to stave off separating Publics and private. Because, sure there's a discrepancy in the talent when comparing them. Some will say " but but but Massillon gets transfers" or they recruit. NOoo,,,,, kids want to come here for a college scholarship opportunity. Occasionally you will have an over zealous fan that will try and persuade a kid to go to a school, but tell me that doesn’t happen at any magnetic school. Perry/ wrestling, Jackson/baseball, ect.
But these power house private football machines hand pick their rosters aided by state vouchers no less. I m mean, look at Hoban,,, they need a quarterback, they immediately find one in a neighboring state!
No questions asked! Oh, and that was after the one lured from Massillon didn't pan out.
Is this wrong? No Not if the same rules apply to the public schools.
Some will say, he's just making excuses for losing to Akron Friday. Nope, we will show up and give em he'll all nite long. Will it be enough? We'll see. That's all I have to say about that.
